Sometimes infants are born needing specialized medical attention. These infants receive high-quality care in The Charles A. Mastronardi Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), one of the most advanced Level III neonatal intensive care units in the tri-state region.
The 15-bed, state-of-the-art NICU provides all the technological support that a baby may need, from advanced monitoring, respiratory support and nutritional support to radiology and physical therapy, in a comfortable, soothing environment. The NICU supports high-risk obstetric and fetal monitoring to allow high-risk babies to stay with their mothers during this critical time.
The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) recently conferred its gold-level Beacon Award for Excellence on the White Plains Hospital NICU. The Hospital's Magnet® status nurses ensure excellence in the delivery of inpatient care, and the Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), the highest level available to a community hospital, provides advanced care for newborns needing specialized medical attention.
The NICU has also earned the Press Ganey Guardian of Excellence Award®. This award honors organizations that have achieved the 95th percentile across Press Ganey clients for patient experience, employee engagement, physician engagement or clinical quality performance.
Led by Jesus C. Jaile-Marti, MD, FAAP, Chief of the Division of Neonatology at White Plains Hospital, the NICU team consists of six board-certified neonatologists and 40 specialized and certified registered nurses who provide an unrivaled level of individualized 24/7 care. These professionals work together to provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art care for your baby. The team spirit of the NICU staff helps babies and families get home healthy, happy and as soon as possible.
